Dan Rooney, co-owner of the Pittsburgh Steelers, is expected to step down as United States ambassador to Ireland.

When asked what role Rooney would have upon his return, his son and team president Art Rooney II said in a text: “My father has been busy and focused on his position in Ireland so we really haven‘t talked about what he wants to do when he gets back. We‘ll talk about that after the season.”

Roethlisberger will play with a custom fit rib/chest compression shirt and a layer of Kevlar-lined composite in his shoulder pads to help absorb hits to his clavicle and shoulder joint regions.

"He looks like himself for the most part," offensive coordinator Todd Haley said. "Now I don't know what he's feeling when he's doing some of those things. But it looks like he's moving around pretty good."
